Zach Haynes: Another British Champion from Redhill Academy

Redhill Academy's Zach Haynes is the Cadets Male Advanced British Taekwondo National Champion


Zach Haynes took home the Gold medal for his category at the British Taekwondo National Championship 2023 in September to add to an amazing year of success for the Redhill Academy student.

Redhill Academy have congratulated Zach, calling him a ‘Redhill Legend’, on his achievements.

Zach is currently ranked UK number one in his weight category and is a member of the National Taekwondo Club. Zach started Taekwondo at 6 years old and his dedication to this craft means he currently commits to a three-hour training session three nights a week after school alongside a three-hour training session on Saturdays with his Taekwondo club.

Zach has finished his year of competition winning gold in November at the International Bergischer-Lowen Cup in Wuppertal, Germany.
